Universiti Malaya to move out of the city?

I received an alert from Malaysia Forum on a piece of news from Business TImes today:

GUOCOLAND (Malaysia) Bhd, a property developer controlled by Tan Sri Quek Leng Chan, has made a bid to relocate University Malaya from Petaling Jaya to Sepang, sources said yesterday.

As part of the plan, GuocoLand will then own the land in Petaling Jaya and develop it into a commercial and residential township. The proposal is based on a private finance initiative.

A company source said such a development is estimated to have a gross development value of RM10 billion.

I plan to do my graduate work in a year or two and Universiti Malaya is the only local institution that I am considering, hoping it to be my safety net. If it goes to Sepang however, I would cross it out of my list and find another safety net.

A reason why I am contemplating Universiti Malaya is its city life. What city life would there be to talk about if it goes to Sepang?

Since it would be close by to the international airport, I might as well take a flight out all the way to Sydney.
